Style Advice of the Week

When someone thinks of leather many things can come to mind. For example, some could think of the Hell’s Angels bikers with their tough leather jackets. Or perhaps, they think of a nice pair of designer boots. When I think of leather I think of a tough and edgy look.

This Fashionista rocks the leather trend in a new and stylish way. She rocks a new twist on the classic biker jacket by sporting an army green jacket with leather sleeves. Aside from her jacket, she also wore a casual maroon top, jeans and studded ankle boots. Lastly, she completes her ensemble with various bold accessories which include necklaces, rings and bracelets. This Fashionista’s jacket has the ability to add a quick punch of style to any outfit of her choice. It’s very fashion forward.

Leather accents have become a very big trend recently. For example, Helmut Lang featured leather accents in various neutral tones on shirts and jackets on their fall 2013 runway. Also, Rebecca Taylor featured leather accents on flirty dresses and peplum tops; which is similar to this Fashionista’s feminine leather look.

This jacket has many other styling possibilities too. For example, she could dress it up with a simple black dress and nude heels for a night out. If she wanted to transition into spring weather, she could pair them with a pair of high-waisted jean shorts and a casual white blouse. This Fashionista proves that leather isn’t only for accessories and members of the Hell’s Angels!
